Jack Heath: More Bang for Your Book

Session Info:

I started writing my first book at age 13, mostly to impress a girl. When I finished it at age 17, I submitted it to a publisher and found myself suddenly catapulted into the wild world of thriller writing.
Since then I’ve written twenty more books, met the other authors at the forefront of the action-writer movement, visited 11 countries including Russia, and been named ACT Young Australian of the Year. I’m Jack Heath, and this is my story.
“The entire Middle School (about 400 students) were in the palm of Jack’s hand from the beginning. He is a self-deprecating, enthusiastic and hilarious storyteller who draws his audience in. Staff and students alike really enjoyed his presentation and they are still (3 weeks later) telling me how great it was.”
-S. Osborne, Haileybury, Brighton, September 2012
